7:03 am
this morning's "eye opener" brought to you by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." hillary clinton says she'll now turn over her private e-mail server. this follows news that two of the e-mails from her personal system contain top-secret information. >> the democratic presidential front-runner had rejected calls to turn over her server. clinton, quote, knows she did something wrong and has run out of ways to cover it up. jan washington with more on what this could mean. >> this is a big change of course. she's insisted she was not going to turn over that private server because it contained personal e-mails. she'd gone through and turned over about half of her some 60,000 e-mails she said were work related. now as part of the fbi's investigation into the handling of all that e-mail she's finally
7:04 am
turned it over amid growing concerns some of her e-mail was highly classified. clinton has repeatedly denied she handled classified information on her private e-mail server while secretary of state. >> i'm confident i never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received. >> i did not e-mail any classified materials to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. >> reporter: according to the state department on tuesday, the inspector general for the intelligence community said at least two of those e-mails should be upgraded to the top secret level. one of the highest levels of classification. hours later clinton directed her team to hand over her entire private e-mail server to the fbi and a thumb drive containing e-mails of the copies she's already provided. the fbi began reviewing the security of the e-mail system last month. >> this was a classic
7:05 am
counterintelligence. has any of this information as a result of being shared in e-mails between hillary clinton fallen into enemy hands? is any of it still out there in the ether on the cloud, on somebody else's thumb drive. >> reporter: senator clinton says her team has worked with the state department to make sure the e-mails are stored in a private manner. reince priebus and john boehner shot back. on the campaign trail, clinton is certain to face growing questions. >> she's supposed to be talking about the issues and how she's going to be a great choice for the leader of our country but now the news is filled with questions about whether or not she's put some national information in jeopardy. >> and already a story having an impact. the latest cbs news poll shows 55% of overall voters think clinton is untrustworthy.
7:06 am
that number up seven points since may. >> all right. thank you so much. the clinton campaign faces new trouble in the key state of new hampshire. for the first time a poll shows vermont senator bernie sanders leading hillary clinton in the first in the nation democratic primary state. the survey shows sanders in front by 44% to 37%. back in march hillary clinton had a 39-point lead. >> the same poll showed donald trump is the top republican candidate in new hampshire. he is now five points ahead of jeb bush. ohio governor john kasich is in third. another new poll shows trump holding a lead in iowa. scott walker is in second place. major garrett is in birch run, michigan, where he spoke to trump after a rally on tuesday. >> good morning. the sign still reads sold out and donald trump did pack the house here. you had to pay to get in. $125 for the best seats.
7:07 am
$25 to the rest. all the proceeds going to the local republican party. trump remained high concept. that means few details. few in the capacity crowd didn't seem to mind. >> ladies and gentlemen, president of the united states, donald j. trump! the very thought thrilled the capacity crowd outside saginaw, michigan. trump's rambling speech, his first since the ratings shattering fox debate last week hit familiar targets. >> china -- >> we owe china $1.4 trillion. their leaders are so much smarter than ours. >> illegal immigration. >> we have to build a wall. the wall -- [ applause ] >> and former florida governor jeb bush. >> i notice he's not doing very well in the polls. >> trump touched on a theme of turn around artists for a country this audience seems to believe needs one.
7:08 am
>> the american dream is dead but i'm going to make it bigger and better and stronger than ever before. okay? >> afterward trump told us nothing could stop him except fickle voters. >> the only thing that can drive me out if my numbers drop down because i'm a realist. >> nancy french of saginaw said she was sold. >> you see the next president of the united states when you see him? >> i do. >> not jeb bush or -- >> no, no, no. they are 100% controlled. >> by what? >> everybody. >> at a press conference, trump again went after bush saying he'd be a poor job creator. >> jeb bush will not be able to negotiate against china. jeb bash wiush will not be able negotiate against mexico. >> reporter: they tried to pin trump down on specific issues he'd take to defeat isirks challenge china and create jobs. we were met with a wall of generalities. voters said they trust
7:09 am
eventually trump will come up with answers. his campaign says in about a week or so. >> there was a lot in that speech. quite a thing to behold. jeb bush blames secretary clinton and president obama for the rise of isis. speaking at the reagan library, he said the obama administration was too quick to take u.s. combat troops out of iraq. >> that premature withdrawal was the fatal error creating the void that isis moved in to fill and isis has exploited to the full. where was the secretary of state clinton in all of this? in all of her record-setting travels she stopped by iraq exactly once. who can seriously argue that america and our friends are safer today than in 2009 when the president and secretary clinton, the storied team of rivals, took office. so eager to be the historymakers, they failed to be the peacemakers.
7:10 am
>> bush said the u.s. may need to send ground troops back to iraq. he called for more air strikes to support iraqi and kurdish troops who are fighting isis which wants better recruitment and trauning for moderate syrian rebels and serious online response to the isis propaganda. ahead we'll talk with another republican candidate, carly fiorina. the only woman in the woman race is picking up new support. she just surpassed jeb bush in iowa. that's ahead here on "cbs this morning." a u.s. army helicopter crashed near japan this morning. seven on board were hurt. it went down during a training mission off okinawa. the wreckage is sitting on a u.s. ship off the japanese coast. the chopper's tail is broken off. the rest is covered with an orange tarp. the helicopter crash while trying to land on the ship. american companies are feeling heat from china's move to weaken its currency. china devalued the yuan for the
7:11 am
second straight day. the initial move monday sent stocks tumbling in the united states. this morning it's down even more. apple fell tuesday by more than 5%. it is one of several u.s. companies that draws heavily on sales to china. seth doane is in beijing. good morning. >> reporter: devaluing the currency here means it's considerably cheaper to produce goods here in china. that's good for the export market which has been struggling. down more than 8% last month. overall the chinese economy has been struggling. on the flip side, it means the yuan, the currency here is not as strong. chinese consumers can't buy as much. that to tough for companies like apple which depend on sales to the chinese market for growth. china's central bank has noted the yuan has been stable over the last several months as other global currencies have dropped. so they say this is a natural correction. but in the u.s., there's cry from lawmakers who say this is
7:12 am
an unfair advantage because you've made chinese products so much cheaper than u.s. products. china's government has been saying along that it wants the yuan to be a global currency so this move could signal that it's willing to tie its currency more to global market forces. regardless, this is likely to be a topic of conversation next month as china's president xi jinping travels to america. >> seth doane in beijing, thank you. secretary of state john kerry made a remarkable admission about foreign cyberespionage. he told scott pelley tuesday it's very possible the chinese and russians are reading his own e-mails. >> unare not nfortunately, we'r in a world where they've consistently been engaged in cyberattacks against american interests, against the american government. >> it's very likely that your e-mails are being read?
7:13 am
>> it's very possible. there's no way for me and -- >> with all of the attacks that have come apparently from china on the u.s. government, there's a sense the united states is unable to defend itself in the cyberworld. >> we are deeply involved in fighting back against this on a daily basis. it has huge consequences, and we're trying to create a code of conduct and a system of behavior that hopefully could rein some of it in. right now it's pretty much the wild west, so to speak. >> kerry's comments come after a recent number of cyberattacks against the government. they believe they were carried out by china and russia. a texas police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man is out of a job. they fired rookie officer brad miller. he killed 19-year-old christian taylor last week at a car dealership. last night that deadly shooting sparked protests outside the
7:14 am
arlington police department. omar villafranca is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. rookie arlington police officer brad miller just joined the department in september and was still in training. he had limited field experience. it's that limited field experience that led to what his department is calling trouble in conduct. >> i have decided to terminate officer miller's employment with the arlington police department for exercising poor judgment. >> reporter: officials say that poor judgment was on display early friday morning when a rookie cop gunned down 19-year-old christian taylor. police were called to an arlington, texas, car dealership to investigate a burglary and found taylor acting erratically. >> officer bradley is seen walking towards the building where christian taylor was located. >> officer miller exercised inappropriate judgment by entering the build alone. this unilateral decision along
7:15 am
with failing to communicate with fellow officers created an environment of cascading consequences that produced an unrecoverable outcome. >> reporter: the 49-year-old officer said he was worried that taylor would overpower him. he fired his weapon four times striking taylor in the neck, chest and abdomen. taylor died at the scene. he wasn't armed and never made physical contact with the officer. miller's training officer who was a few feet away at the time of the shooting fired his taser. he's on paid administrative leave. they'll hand the case over to the district attorney who will present it for possible criminal charges but not until the investigation is complete. local officials in missouri could lift the state of emergency for ferguson some time today. a few dozen marched through the suburb. they were mostly peaceful.

7:17 am
colorado governor john hickenlooper visited a contaminated stretch of the river tuesday and admitted while he's disappointed with the epa, he's focused on the cleanup. >> that said our primary role is that's behund us and how are we going to move forward? >> reporter: even though the water looks normal now, over the last week a plume of pollution with heavy metals including arsnuk and lead has marched 100 miles don stream. in washington, d.c., tuesday, the epa administrator gina mccarthy apologized for the spill. >> it pains me to no end to see this is happening. we're committed to full review of exactly what happened. >> reporter: preliminary tests show in durango the water quality is returning to the level it was before the accident. still the river will need to be monitored for years to come.

king and norah o'donnell. fbi investigators will finally have ak soes to hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the democratic presidential front-runner agreed on tuesday to turn it over to the justice department. clinton also handed over a thumb drive with copies of those messages. the state department says two of the e-mails september through the server are classified top secret. a spokesman says department employees circulated these e-mails on unclassified systems on 2009 and 2011. ultimately some were forwarded to secretary clinton. they were not marked as classified. a new poll this morning shows donald trump leads the republican field in new hampshire. 41% in the survey say they support some of trump's ideas, but they think he didn't have the right temperament to be president. in another poll 57% of republican voters say they're less comfortable with trump after last week's debate. major garrett asked the candidate about that last night. >> voters were less comfortable. >> i haven't seen that. my numbers went up.
8:03 am
i don't know. my numbers went up. excuse me. did i win? >> that's for you to decide. >> excuse me. if you don't say yes, then good-bye. >> major garrett is with us from birch run, michigan. good morning. that's trump just being trump. you asked a good question. there was actually a lot many this poll that suggests there might be a ceiling for trump, right? >> reporter: that's right. donald trump does appear to be indifferent or immune to data that makes him unhappy. that could be a possible for him as a professional politician which he now admits he has to be. you have to weigh the data. donald trump tells voters all the time that he's very good at that, very skilled at understanding the mechanics of data and how to cut deals and make things happen. well, it's clear mfrom the data in new hampshire that some voters felt less comfortable after the debate even though donald trump says he won. it was his first debate against professional politicians. hi has some legitimate claim to having won that debate, but he does seem hostile to the idea

>> when i went into that debate last thursday, less than 40% of republican voters had ever heard my name. so i had a big introduction to do, and i think now that people know who i am, know that i am capable of not only winning this job, but doing this job, i'm going to continue doing what i've been doing which is talking to as many voters as i can about what i think is necessary for our nation. and what i think is necessary, first and foremost, is a different kind of leadership that will challenge the status quo in washington, get this economy going again, really cut government bureaucracy down and hold it accountable and leadership that will restore our place in the world. >> many people would say that who want to be president. the question is, how do you do that? >> but many people don't have the experience and the resume that i have. having started as a secretary and gone on to become the chief executive of the largest

growing is at the core of their power. i would say first that we are going to be more aggressive in helping our allies in that region push back against new chinese aggression. whether those allies are australia or japan or the philippines. i would be conducting actually now at a moment when china's economy is wavering a bit. i would be conducting more flyovers on the south china sea. we cannot permit china to control a trade route through which passes $5 trillion worth of goods and services every year. and finally i would say, chinese cyber attacks are an act of aggression on the united states and they must stop. it is also true our government has to be more competent about detecting and repelling those attacks. >> ms. fiorina, the director of the new hampshire poll says all of these long-shot candidates staying in the race are helping to keep donald trump on top and hurting the chances of some of the other candidates. do you agree it's hurting your
8:08 am
candidacy as well? what do you think about him being on top? >> you know, i actually think that voters, republican voters are quite happy to see a broad diverse qualified field. voters are going to decide. this field will shake out over time. i also think that presidential campaigns reveal character over time and under pressure. what's going to happen is each of our characters will continue to be revealed, over time and under pressure. >> if mr. trump becomes a nominee, would you support him? >>ly support whoever the nominee of the republican party is. >> all right. carly fiorina. good to have you at the table. we hope you come back. >> thanks for having me. can science stop drones from causing another tragedy in the middle of this summer's wildfires. ah,,

than divorce, unemployment or the death of a partner. helen fisher is a biological anthropologist and senior research fellow at the kenzie institute. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i was surprised by this. we're not talking about postpart postpartum. we should make that very clear. most people are having the baby shower, you're picking out clothes and names but it can also cause unhappiness. >> right. they say the amount of unhappiness is even more than when you've been divorced, when you're divorcing, when you are losing a job, and when your partner dies. >> why is that, helen? >> you know, there's many reasons for this. but i think the most important one -- i mean, i've studied the brain, and the most important thing is the social isolation. people simply assume that when you are getting a divorce, they pile in to help you. they pile in to help you when you've lost your job. they really pile in when you've lost your partner. but they don't pile in when you've had a child. so you're really happy. your mother might come for six
8:34 am
weeks and take care of the newborn, but then she's gone. you get some presents from various friends, and then they just leave you alone because they figure you're too tired and too busy. you know, i mean, for millions of years, we've lived in these little hunting and gathering bands, and that child was passed from person to person to person over and over again. giving the mother enough time to get enough sleep, to talk with her friends, et cetera. it's not natural, really, to raise a baby all by yourself in a home alone. >> so the reason with the unhappiness is the time demands it makes on the mother. >> there's many reasons. certainly exhaustion, sleep deprivation. very often your relationship with your primary partner becomes more and more difficult. and we live in a society now where we're turning inwards. that primary relationship is the most important thing that we have. we used to live in large communities. and our allegiance was to god and community and larger family. now it's to one person. and when that system begins to
8:35 am
break down with the exhaustion, et cetera, then you're losing almost everything. >> so you're a biological anthropologist. and you say we've become less family centric. and that plays a part. how do we become -- how do we reverse that? >> well, what we're really missing is local community. and we can regain local community even if our mother lives in minnesota and our best girlfriends in other parts of the country. >> but isn't the counterargument we're more connected because of our devices? >> but it's isolation. you're doing it at home by yourself. you're not doing it in a big group. there's no local community. i mean, i jog in central park in the mornings. and i see these groups of mothers with their little baby carriages with tiny babies in it. and they're building that local community that the human animal needs. but they will all go home alone. they will all spend the rest of the day pretty much by themselves. they're also concerned about work these days. many women are working and they're just scared that they might lose some of the impetus at the office, et cetera, et
8:36 am
cetera. there's a great deal of struggle. >> so the most important lesson here is to find a community and create a community. >> absolutely. and we would do that naturally. >> and share. >> yes. >> got you. >> really interesting. >> i think so, too. >> yeah. build your community. think how we have a community here at the table. >> i didn't understand the study, helen. and then you start talking to people. and more and more people are saying yeah, i wasn't exactly happy. >> as a matter of fact, there's a taboo against it. you know someone's depressed when they're getting depressed or losing a job or losing a partner. but we assume that they're happy, and that's what's unusual about this study because people don't even do the studies to find out because we're so engrossed in the feeling that this is just perfect bliss. >> thank you. >> thank you, helen fisher. >> thank you. proof this morning that it's never too late to push yourself in the gym. a recent study shows people 55 and older are the fastest growing group that are joining health clubs. how about that? well, we met a remarkable 77-year-old woman who's reshaping more than her body by breaking a sweat.

>> do one more lap around the box. >> reporter: keeping up with her today, it's hard to believe that just a few months ago, constance's body was failing her. you've had two hip replacements. >> two knee replacements. two rotator cuffs, a partial and a full. >> reporter: but all of that couldn't stop her from turning her life around. how important do you think it is for seniors to be working out? >> get up and do it. stop with the whining. stop with oh, you've got to take care of me. take care of yourself. >> reporter: something constance didn't used to do. her health problems started almost 30 years ago when she was 50. she took insulin four times a day for diabetes and 60 pills to treat high blood pressure, congenital heart failure, and arthritis. then last fall, constance's done suggested she try crossfit and helped her find this brooklyn

>> reporter: she calls you her adopted son. how does that make you feel? >> it's good. she's my adopted mother. there's a psychosocial element to fitness. part of all this is meeting people and expanding your social base and just having more people in your life that you can depend upon and that you can trust. >> reporter: for constance, that moment came in june. her devoted husband, the man who took her to every crossfit session, died suddenly. it was on the same day he was scheduled to start his own fitness plan. what would your husband think of where you are today? >> he's with me right now. he was my nurse, my doctor, my friend, my everything. he was my encouragement. he's still my encouragement. >> reporter: encouragement that constance says will keep her working out. crossfit has changed you physically. >> mentally, spiritually.
